Fits all BMW 3 Series 6 Cylinder!
(except for the 2001 and up BMW M3)

Manifold Fits: M50 M50TU M52 S50 S52 M54 Engines
??

that cant be right...arent the e36 manifold different then on the e46?

MachRc 10-03-2008 01:33 PM

sadly its fit plus the thought that the stock ecu will adapt to 6psi of turbo power is the reason people kill their motors

The M50, M50TU, M52, M52TU, M54, S50, and S52 all share the same exhaust manifold bolt pattern, hence headers/manifolds are interchangeable.

lots of us actually have those kits dude....

they are bolt-on, no tuning required.

pbfanatic321 10-04-2008 11:47 PM

When it says -

Easy 330+ HP at 8 psi

does it mean it adds 330 to your current horsepower? Or will bring it up to 330?

That confuses me. If it adds 330, then that stuff is sick.

PaPaBear19 10-05-2008 12:03 AM

330 HP sounds perfect in my ear..

PaPaBear19 10-05-2008 12:03 AM

zx5rider 10-05-2008 12:18 AM

Well respected companions like AA, ESS, Dinan, etc. haven't come up with a turbo kit, but some chump from eBay has it down? Come on people.

Im convinced turbo kits for our cars are like the cure for aids. It is very possible but if they marketed it people would stop buying the superchargers (or condoms) that they have already spent so much $$ researching and designing.

Alright chief, I don't know wtf I'm talking about. Turbocharging an E46 is a piece of cake, the only problem is most BMW tuners are too stupid or lazy to release a kit. Oh and their superchargers are over priced too, a kit should only run us about $1.5 - $2K instead of the $5K+

lafabritto325ci 10-05-2008 11:05 AM

wow relax there bud... i am not saying you dont know wtf ur tlking about... what i said was there is no reason to be calling some1 a chump because they put together a kit for the car and sold it on ebay... I know its not easy to tune a bmw ecu as i would never attempt to do it.. I was looking into the nick G kit and i know its been in development for quite some time. I would gladly pay 5-6k to boost my car IF i didnt have a 325, at least its something that has been tested and worked on by someone who knows what they are doing.
